  • Return to Zoe's Cottage


    We were fortunate to be able to return for a second stay at Zoe's Cottage. The cottage is a hidden gem at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. When you walk through the front gate you instantly feel relaxed, surrounded by trees and other plants. It only gets better when you take the new path to the back yard and walk a few steps to the dune above the beach. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is inside the house and on the property. The beach is practically in your back yard but there are also lots of interesting places to visit within a short drive. Whether you like the botanical gardens, aquarium, minor league baseball, or historic landmarks there are many choices for day trips. When you want to spend the day on the beach then go out for dinner there are a variety of great restaurants nearby. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable and charming spot at the beach we highly recommend Zoe's Cottage.

  • Perfect Getaway


    Zoe’s Cottage is charming and quaint! Has everything you need! Feels like you are staying with family as they entrust you with personal books and history pertaining to the cottage. It is a little bit of Heaven on Earth!

  • Zoe’s Cottage is perfect!!!


    We came out to visit our daughter for Christmas who is stationed in Norfolk. This home was the perfect place for a winter beach vacation. The cottage has some great history. It was cozy & relaxing. We walked the beach everyday & drank our coffee from the bench just above the beach. And we had a sweet little kitty, Oreo, that lived down the beach & gave us much love everyday. Thank you for offering such a lovely place to stay to celebrate Christmas with family!

  • Mom’s 99th Birthday!


    4 generations of family from Va Beach, Fredricksburg Va, Richardson TX and Albuquerque NM came together to celebrate our Mom, grandmom, great grand mom’s birthday. The Texas and NM contingent needed a place to stay and we found Zoe’s Cottage! Incredible place, carefully and artfully decorated, full kitchen supplies, tons of games, and literally on the beach with a great sunrise watching bench. We did an early Christmas gift exchange and game playing at the Cottage one evening; the rest of the time we chilled (literally - it was cold) and walked on the beach. Kroger is less than two miles away and Anchor Allie’s, Captain Groovys and Waffletown are in between. We will be back again!
